RosettaCode is an excellent resource to answer the question for yourself by exploration.

Pick a well-represented task, like Top rank per group, and try to follow each line of the solution in each language. When you don't understand something, check the documentation for the language. When that fails, ask for an explanation of the mystery line in some forum of the language's users.

When you are done, you will have a sense of how much you had to stretch your brain to use the language, and whether you are interested in learning more. You will also know the quality of the language docs, and just as important, how receptive the language's community is to someone of your knowledge level.

Whatever you decide, please return someday to tell us how your adventure unfolded.
